Top companies hiring 2018

2018's job market was definitely one for the history books.

Employment increased steadily throughout the year with an average monthly gain of 209,000 jobs over the past 12 months, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, (December’s job numbers will be revealed on Jan. 4, 2019). .

This year, average hourly earnings grew by 81 cents, to end the year at $27.35, a 3.1% increase over last year. 

So, what do all of these great statistics mean? It means companies are hiring—and some companies, in particular, are doing a lot of it. Over the past year, we published our Monster 100, a weekly list of the companies with the most new job listings on Monster. So before we close the books on 2018, we wanted to take a look back to see which 100 companies had the biggest hiring frenzies over the course of the whole year. This is our third-annual “Mega Monster 100” (see last year’s here).

Using data provided by the TalentNeuron tool from insights and technology company Gartner, we came up with the following roundup of companies with the most new job listings posted on Monster in 2018.

After jockeying for the top spot throughout the year, it's not surprising that UPS led the pack this year—for the second year in a row—with an impressive 27,250 total jobs posted on Monster. Rounding out the top five are Advantage Solutions, Army, Brookdale, and Honeywell.

Overall, the economy showed strength in a variety of industries and that was demonstrated on Monster. Construction, WarehousingInformation Technology,
 Healthcare, and business services were strong sectors for job growth throughout 2018.

If you’re looking to get your job search on, you might want to start with this list of fast-growing companies. Who knows? You could start your new year with a new job at one of these top employers.
